Industrial research on the implementation of an innovative model of level 2 altimetry SAR (known as “retracker”) oriented to the study of different scenarios, which facilitates an adjustment to the real data and the extraction of the different geophysical parameters of interest on:
- oceans / open sea
- coastal areas
- continental waters
- ice glaciers and polar ice caps
For the first time this new model has allowed to incorporate Sentinel-3 Level 1 Processing Features and to adapt Level 2 processing in a flexible way to different scenarios of interest, improving the achievement of related geophysical parameters.
